The most well-known portion of the privacy order requires ISPs to get opt-in consent from consumers before sharing Web browsing data and other private information with advertisers and other third parties. The opt-in rule is supposed to take effect December 4, 2017, unless the FCC or Congress eliminates it before then.

Pai has said that ISPs shouldn't face stricter rules than online providers like Google and Facebook, which are regulated separately by the Federal Trade Commission.

That's kind of... well, insane. Who believes that Google and Facebook have equal access to your data as your ISP?

Nobody. But the ISPs believe that if they give random-ass Republican senators as many bribes as Google and Facebook do, they should get the same treatment. Since Ajit Pai is the republicans' good little bitch, he does what his masters order him to do.

I hope he gets Vulcan Aids, the fucking piece of shit.

It sounds like a fun mission, but I really wish it got integrated into the main storyline somehow.

So this doesn't really fit in? All other DLCs for both Human Revolution and Mankind Divided were so obviously just cut content to sell later, that it's almost justified the series ended like this because of the developer greed! Just compare them to the Dishonered DLCs, which were real expansions...

I don't know if it fits in story-wise, to be honest, I meant that you have to play it separately from the main menu.

Please let us know what you thought, SMA. I'm on the fence about getting it.

What the shit, AMD? I thought you'd been saying you were looking to get market share back, and would price accordingly. And then you charge $329 for your cheapest processor?
It beats the $440 dollar 6800k. Not sure if you want to get you panties in a wad just yet.
Besides, AMD just can't give their processors away, that would not make good business sense in the long run.

That's fair enough, but I kind of expected them to come in sub 300.

Yeah, he's a dick. He's a dick to everybody. Get over it. And if you can't, put him on ignore. Not like he gives a shit.

But aren't you then rewarding that behavior through inaction? Some people take nothing said as approval, especially trolls.

That's really pretty darn rare, doesn't fit troll behavior, and it certainly doesn't fit sc. If you don't talk to sc, he doesn't talk to you. Ergo, Latin, if you take offense at the way he talks, and you don't talk to him, he doesn't talk back offensively to you.

It seems a simple premise. And again, you feel he needs to be banned. Other people feel other people should be banned. If we created a list, I'm sure that 80% of the entire forum will be on someone's list. So where do we draw the line? Let's just ban everybody?

Yes, he's a dick. He also contributes pretty decently to other stuff, as opposed to certain other folks that come here and don't get banned for it.

Just.Ignore.Him. Either through the button, or by just not engaging him. Even he will eventually get it if literally nobody talks to him anymore.

3K a month, hot damn. My mortgage is $1250 for 2700 sq feet, 4 bed, 2 bath and a 3 car garage. Oh, and four acres of land.

Anyway, hope you get it, SMH, you seem pretty excited about it! Good luck!

The problem with ignoring, vs banning, is that you can still pop into a 100 post thread, expecting it to be good discussion, and instead it's just good posters arguing with a troll. Banning solves that entire derailment issue.

But then we come to a point of "who is a troll, and who isn't." There are far, FAR better people worthy of the troll label (and consequent ban, if we were to go by that argument) than space captain/harlock/rudra/whoever.

The gameplay looks very good, but I'm worried about the way they described the campaign. It alternates between the three races, which gives me this feeling that it'll be like 9 missions in total or something, and then for mission 10 you pick which race you want to win the storyline.

It seems a cheap way to make a campaign for all three races, and typically that means it'll be short and pretty forgetful...

I hope I'm wrong, because I want this to be awesome.

id probably liken it to a "fast-casual" dining experience (5 guys, etc), but thats usually comfort food anyways so yeh thats a good analogy

however, id say this is the most interesting combat gameplay ive seen for the series, so thats encouraging enough to think it might be more enjoyable than the previous series just in the fun factor area

I agree, this video is showing off some really fun looking combat. Allowing you to easily flush enemies out of cover is a great direction to take the combat system in, as in ME2 and ME3 a few strong enemies in cover would really bog you down (Unless you were a Vanguard, but if they were close together you really didn't dare charge into them anyway.)

Hey Bill? That robot doesn't get paid. So what you're really saying is that that manufacturer who uses the robot should pay taxes.

Which is fine and all. Except that manufacturer simply raises his prices to make up for the taxes. Which means his customers, ie us, pay for it.

So it's basically just another way of saying there should be a Universal Basic Income.
